These were very easy to make and looked lovely on our table at the end of our St. Patrick's Day feast. My kiwis were smallish, so I added a few more - the tartness of the kiwis is a nice complement to the sweetness of the pudding. I omitted the green food coloring, leaving the Cool Whip white. The alternating layers of color - green pudding and white Cool Whip looked very nice - especially with the sprinkling of green sugar atop the final dollop of Cool Whip. I think I might try using real whipped cream next time, but my family really enjoyed it with the Cool Whip. These were very good - and your kids will love them.

These were so easy and so good--we all wished I doubled the recipe and made more.

Lennie, we really enjoyed this. I used real whipping cream which I left white and topped that with the dyed green raw sugar for a pretty contrast. Also, I layered chopped up pieces of homemade sugar cookies with the other ingredients, the first layer on the bottom of the glass being the cookie pieces, and so forth. The guests thought this was the highlight of the meal. It's been years since I made instant pudding, especially pistachio pudding but we got a kick out the whimsical and colorful presentation. For fun, I decorated each serving on top with a thin slice of kiwi and a mini shamrock-shaped sugar cookie with green sugar sprinkles. Thanks for the suggestion. CG

This was very easy to make, the flavor is awesome (if you like pistachio and kiwi). First time I followed the recipe exactly, 2nd time I doubled the recipe for a really nice trifle & added a crunch to the layers... graham cracker crust (the same recipe you would use for a pie crust). This is becoming a weekly dessert at my house. I'm not sure that's a good thing... But thanks for a great recipe.

This was great. I used a layer of pound cake to give it some more texture. This was a nice refreshing treat after dinner and it is very kidfriendly. Thanks.
